Above is the back lane at the height of summer with Tregantle Fort in the background.
Many times as you drive down you will see a buzzard sitting on the pole looking down into the verges, or a dragon fly flit by with the countless butterflies. Sometimes you may encounter a pheasant who will waddle along until it decides to hop aside. Then, as the light goes you may have to swerve for the occasional rabbit and once we stopped to watch a young deer stare at us and then in one push jump over the hedge. Of course those are the sort of encounters you look forward to but most times it will be an encounter with another four wheeled engine, cars are okay as long as you make a mental note of the passing places along the route and it’s pretty democratic who will pull in for the other but tractors you have to back up for no matter what.
